The decision is made. The Hague City Council has decided that a total of 130 new homes are being built in the inner city. One of the places where these new homes will be built is on Raamstraat, a side street of Grote Marktstraat.

The Priba department store used to be here, but for many people it is also known as the Zeeman building. The property runs from Grote Marktstraat all the way to Vlamingstraat.

New homes and shops

As the plans are now, there is a new building. The building will have 9 floors. There will be a public bicycle shed in the basement. Shops will be located on the ground floor and approximately

on the upper floors. houses built.

    It is a bit of a shock when you come unsuspectingly to the Schroeder thrift shop in the Piet Heinstraat and suddenly see that all the windows have been taped. There was always something to get at this large thrift store. The store is now temporarily closed. There is a complete makeover going on in the property.

    The store will remain Schroeder’s and will not completely go away, but a lot will change in the store. This Schroeder store will sell products made from used materials.

    Recycled items

    The renovation is currently underway in full swing. An opening date has not yet been announced. In the new store, Schroeder will be selling recycled/upcycled items. This means that they will reuse old furniture, fabrics, plastic, paper and metal and make new products from it.

    Those products are made by people who are developing their creative side and talents. Schroeder previously opened a upcycle store, on their Instagram you can see how that went. In the meantime, luckily you can still go to plenty other thrift shops in The Hague.

    The bicycle shed appears to be a temporary bicycle shed are. The fences around it are there for a reason, because the bicycle shed can also be closed. Good to know. Before you know it, your bicycle will suddenly be locked up there.

    Temporary bicycle shed

    This is a temporary bicycle shed. The bicycle shed is intended for students and teachers of the Royal Conservatoire so that they can park their bicycles safely. Since this week, the conservatory is also housed in the large art and culture building Amare, on the Turfmarkt.


    How long the bicycle shed will remain next to the Muzentoren on Turfmarkt is still unclear. At the moment, the students and teachers who work and study in Amare can still park their bicycles in the bicycle shed under Amare.

    Due to construction work in the Turfmarkt garage next door, the bicycle shed under Amare will be closed from Monday to Friday. closed for a while. That is why a temporary bicycle shed has now been placed next to the tram tunnel at Wijnhaven and Turfmarkt.

    It was a bit of a party throughout The Hague this afternoon. The doors of many theaters and museums opened again for a while. It rained warnings from boas, but that didn’t spoil the fun. As they said at De Nieuwe Regentes: “we feel a bit naughty.”

    Of course we were there too. We took a look at Amare, which had been converted into a gym this afternoon. We also went to hair salon De Nieuwe Regentes, where you got a new haircut while you could watch and listen to singers and dancers on stage.

    Protest action

    Hair Salon Theater was a large, national protest against the current corona measures. Theaters, museums and other cultural places think they can open safely and so they transformed their locations into a gym, nail studio or hair salon. After all, they were allowed to open their doors since Saturday.

    Young talent and sports

    De Nieuwe Regentes had two hair salon sessions. In the first session (where we attended) the young talents Aleksandra Popovska, the dance company The Dutch Don’t Dance Division and singer Lilo from Girls in Woods on.

    After that we quickly left for Amare Gym for a sports session. On Boléro, among others, the feet went off the floor and a sports instructor taught a dance workout to all participants. Athletes of all ages took part.

    Amare also received a warning from the boas. According to the organization of Amare, their official warning will be given a nice spot on the wall. Being naughty has never been so much fun.

    This morning the whole of The Hague woke up again with its head in the clouds. The fog was so dense that entire buildings and streets completely disappeared in the fog. You didn’t even see the skyline of The Hague anymore, not even a little bit! We have had fog more often in the past week, but today the fog was very thick. It did make for some nice pictures.

    8 x this is how you make your city walk in The Hague even more fun


    It is wonderful to live in our beautiful city behind the dunes. There is only one major drawback: seagulls. In the summer you will be screamed out of bed by those animals before 6 o’clock in the morning. They tear the garbage bags everywhere and if you’re not careful they take the food from your hands. In winter it is wonderfully quiet in The Hague. Where are those seagulls in the winter?

    We enjoy the peace and quiet in Den The Hague and Scheveningen, but we are also curious where the seagulls have suddenly gone. Sharon Lexmond, head animal caretaker of bird shelter De Wulp

    , has the answer for us.

    Two species in The Hague

    “In The Hague there are different types of gulls. Some people talk about seagulls, but they don’t exist. The most common species in The Hague are the great herring gulls. You know, those who look so mean,” says Sharon. “The Lesser Black-backed Gull also likes to stay here.”

    Sharon explains a lot more to us. There are several reasons why you are now not bothered by the seagulls. The lesser black-backed gull has left for England in the winter. There are even little black-backed gulls that fly all the way to the coast of Africa.

    No noise from gulls in winter

    The herring gull will remain in the Netherlands. These gulls are especially noisy when they have young. They don’t have it in the winter, which is why it is so nice and quiet in the city and on Scheveningen.

    In addition to the lesser black-backed gull and the herring gull, there is another species in the Netherlands: the black-headed gull. This gull also stays in the Netherlands in the winter, only the gull changes its appearance. In the summer this bird has a black head and in the winter a white one.
